My inbox and QTP Forums are being swamped nowadays due to people experiencing various problems during installation of UFT. The #1 reason for these issues has been corrupt downloads.
For various versions of UFT (formerly QTP), the size of downloaded files is in the range of 1GB – 3.1GB. On a slower internet connection, this huge file size may result in corrupted downloads.
Here is quick method on how to verify the integrity of your downloaded QTP/UFT ISO(or a zip) file –
- Download and install this nice freeware called MD5 Check (Softpedia Link). Just choose the default options during installation. It’s lightweight and should install quickly.
- Browse to the location where you have stored the downloaded UFT ISO file.
- Enter the MD5 checksum for the version of QTP you wish to check. List is given below.
Here is a list of MD5 Checksum for various versions of QTP/UFT and the corresponding downloaded file names.
